Hi all, we are moving to the bay area soon. My SO will start a job in Menlo Park, I'll continue with consulting. We see thinking about moving to Redwood City or Palo Alto - any recommendations?

Redwood City is less expensive, they have put a lot of money and effort into creating a downtown and it’s really paid off. Palo Alto is a really nice area but also boring. Its a weird vibe bc you have young people bc of the University, old money snobbery and new money exhibitionism

Thanks for the insights! Will be there next weekend to scout the area

San Mateo is the new place. A lot of of folks I’ve met that lived in the city and moved out to the Bay settle in San Mateo

San Carlos is quite lovely and less crowded than RWC or San Mateo if finding a quiet place is your priority. It’s also close to things. Prime location.
